"We are looking to get this guy out," said one man.

Two individuals described as "vigilantes" attempted to evict squatters from a New York City residence after the owner of the home was arrested for trying to remove them.

According to a report by the Daily Mail, the two men arrived at the home located in Flushing, Queens on Tuesday and tried to speak with the squatters who have been occupying the residence since Feb 6.

"We are looking to get this guy out," one of the vigilantes claimed.

"I am here to talk to him," he added. "I want to see why he is here."

Adele Andaloro, 47, who owns the $1 million home bequeathed to her by her family, was arrested by NYPD for unlawful conviction after she had changed the locks in an attempt to prevent the squatters from re-entering the property. According to NYC law, changing locks is prohibited if "tenants" have inhabited a building for more than 30 days.

Neighbors are furious about the situation and told the publication that the occupants have been seen and heard doing construction inside the property.

"It's disgusting," one individual told the outlet as he was passing by the property.

"I wish I could live rent-free," he added sarcastically.

Another neighbor said they had witnessed one of the squatters carrying a door into the home.

"I actually saw the door go into the house. The guy looked at me then looked away," she explained, adding, '"I didn't know what was going on."

Furthermore, a 24-year-old college student who lives next to the property with his family asserted that he has been "on edge" since the squatters moved into the home a few weeks ago. He explained that the windows to the residence, which had a "For Sale" sign on it, had been boarded up. He also explained that he could hear the occupants carrying out nightly construction projects.

"They are doing construction on the house all night long. I heard a drill and saw through my window that they were drilling holes into the wall and putting up boards," he said. "I don't know if the board is still there, but it looked like they were trying to hide what was inside."

The neighbor went on to explain that the community is very tight-knit, saying "We all know what they are up to, so we're all kind of pissed about it."

Several neighbors have expressed how the situation unfolding is utterly unfair, even suggesting that the community sign a petition with the hope of making the matter right.
